Where to donate televisions?

Recommended Posts

Does anyone have any ideas of perhaps an old folks home, I guess even an orphanage, etc. where I may be able to donate a couple of televisions? They are the older CRT type (actually one is some kind of hybrid) but they work fine. I've advertised on a few places and my wife has too - offering them from close to nothing - to nothing, but only got a few smart ass remarks from millennials. I hate to throw them out. The only thing is that they would have to be picked up.

 

Thanks in advance.

If you live in a house, just put them outside the front gate.

Are you crazy?I would be hamstrung if I got caught removing useless pieces of rubbish from the premises.I would have to dismantle and cut into small pieces and smuggle into the bin.They also have people that actually go around and buy recyclable stuff.

Another option would be to donate them to one of the numerous tv-repair shops.

Just leave them on the street in town or by the rubbish if it's collected. The rubbish collectors will give to a good home and they might even make a few baht.

Please, let's stop turning orphanages into dumpsters. Kids deserve better.

A CRT may not be an LED but it is better than nothing !

I have 30 identical CRT 40" TV's with remotes if someone wants them.

 

Pick up only....and all of them. FREE.

Put it on the side of the street. If you are fancy then add a cardboard with ฟรี written on it. Problem solved.

Probably not when you consider the cost to operate them and that most will not be able to do the basic TV job of over the air reception (which is now digital).  I recall our first TV - a World War II radar that Raytheon rebranded as a 12 1/2 inch round TV is the 40's.  That was 70 years ago - time for a change.

Anything we don't want and are prepared to let go for free is happily taken by our maid. 

 

We had a damaged flat screen which worked, but had 5 x 2" white spots on the image - the Maid was ok with this (I guess she's either selling them on and making a little extra or is getting fixed and selling it etc), she works extremely hard, is extremely reliable, we're happy that she can offload the stuff we don't want and if she is making any profit in the process, good for her.
